Updating your working copyThis information is from TortoiseSVN Help
Periodically, you should ensure that changes done by others get incorporated in your local working copy.
The process of getting changes from the server to your local copy is known as updating.
Updating may be done on single files, a set of selected files, or recursively on entire directory hierarchies.To update:
- Select the files and/or directories you want to update
- Right click and select TortoiseSVN -> Update in the explorer context menu.
- A window will pop up displaying the progress of the update as it runs.
- Changes done by others will be merged into your files, keeping any changes you may have done to the same files.
- The repository is not affected by an update.
- Multiple files/folders: If you select multiple files and
folders in the explorer and then select Update, all of those files/folders
are updated one by one.
TortoiseSVN makes sure that all files/folders which are from the same repository are updated to the exact same revision, even if between those updates another commit occurred.
The progress dialogue box above uses colour coding to highlight different update actions:
Purple: New item added to your WC.
Dark Red: Redundant item deleted from your WC, or missing item replaced in your WC.
Green: Changes from repository successfully merged with your local changes.
Bright Red: Changes from repository merged with local changes, resulting in conflicts which you need to resolve.
Black: Unchanged item in your WC updated with newer version from the repository.
(These are default colours, but they can be customised)
